Extension Top Tips:
Here are a couple tips that we have drawn up to enable you to get the most from your house extension:
Avoid creating a through room: this has to take into consideration the way in which you enter your extension. By dividing up a room to create an entrance or hallway to your additional space may mean that you are sacrificing more than you are gaining. Ensure to avoid the creation of an unusable space, a walk through or a dumping ground.
Ensure to have adequate facilities: if you are looking to add bedrooms in your extension design it is important that you have a balance of bathrooms or shower rooms to facilitate this. It is well-accepted that a four-bedroom house should have an en-suite and main bathroom. If you are looking to add any further bedrooms, careful consideration should be made to offer additional facilities.
